I lost count of the number of times I thought I was in love, but it still took a while before I acknowledged the reasons for so many failures. Most of my relationships were what I call, unconscious entanglements; two dysfunctional people meeting and partnering quickly.

I can't imagine recommending anything other than online dating to my clients. Sure, there are other possibilities and venues where single boomers can meet, but none equals online dating in terms of potential. I know it can feel like swimming through molasses at times but it works.

I'm thankful that we satisfy our sexual desires regularly, and make love as a slow waltz. And while I wouldn't use marathon to describe our sex life, it feels just right. I admire boomer women who know how to age gracefully, and these women have helped me smooth out the emotional aspects of my own aging process.

Simon and Garfunkel's song title is applicable to the turbulent boomer dating waters. It's a consistently divisive issue, and I'm surprised how stubbornly contentious it remains. Why so much acrimony?

At first glance, 49 is a big number, but there are three relevant facts to consider. First, the 49 first dates spanned 18 months. Second, each was a coffee date lasting 15 to 45 minutes. Third, and most important, my partner Sarah was the 50th.

Sex was my primary measuring stick to evaluate relationships until I turned 50, which was when I learned the best sex includes an emotional connection. I realize casual sex might work for some over-50 guys, but it can't compare with loving sex.

Online Dating Advice For Middle-Aged Singles From A Man With Experience

Ken Solin | Posted 06.10.2015 | Fifty
Ken Solin

Boomer dating requires a fair amount of courage, and it also takes grit, determination, and stamina. Online dating is a high-wire act. The potential for getting rejected exists no matter how cool or good-looking you are, and there's no net to catch you when you fall.

How To Spring Clean Your Online Dating Profile

Ken Solin | Posted 06.03.2015 | Fifty

Like your home, your online dating profile could more than likely use a spring cleaning, especially if it has remained the same all winter. The term shopworn also applies to online dating profiles, because they begin to look tattered and picked over if they haven't been changed or updated in a while.

4 Tips To Deal When Your Partner Is A Backseat Driver

I urge boomers to ignore any pressure to marry again quickly, whether from a partner, friends, or relatives. This is your life and it's entirely your decision. Neither my partner nor I choose to marry, but we both feel living together is a viable option.

Is sex the same nearing 70 as it was at 50? No, but that's not necessarily bad news. The lessons I've gleaned over the past few decades have actually made sex a better experience.

How I Finally Accepted The Idea That Boomer Women Don't Need Men

Ken Solin | Posted 03.31.2015 | Fifty
Ken Solin

I've taken some heat in the past for being so outspokenly upbeat about boomer women, but in my experience they truly are amazing. I was surprised at first when boomer women talked about eschewing boomer men, and that they said this without bitterness.

Ken Solin | Posted 03.24.2015 | Fifty

Boomers enjoy the highest divorce rate of any demographic, which begs the question of whether or not they'll ever find lasting love. Does this ranking simply reflect aging couples growing apart, or does it point to a flaw in boomer character?

You can learn quite a bit about someone while you're dating. Foods they like, favorite activities, sexuality, intellect, family ties, openness, integrity, and a myriad of other qualities. But there's a particularly telling aspect of a relationship that's not obvious and it's a reliable predictor of its future.

His profile had described his marital status as "separated," which I took to mean living separately. When the truth came out, that phrase actually meant that he and his wife sometimes "separated" when she was in the kitchen directing the staff while he was in the den writing to women.

Every boomer who has dated for a while knows how difficult it is to meet someone special, a keeper. Most single boomers have ridden a fair number of rockets, and each time they've blasted off willingly and hopefully, albeit naively. But the nerve-jangling hangover from a crashed rocket leaves boomers reeling in pain and confusion.

Peter Pan Syndrome

The charmingly boyish man who refuses to grow up will age just the same as the men who have careers, mortgages and families. He will grow older too, but with much less in his life. Peter Pan at 60 isn't nearly as adorable as at 20.

Ken Solin | Posted 11.21.2014 | Fifty
Ken Solin

Am I going to date forever? This is a question that date-fatigued boomer women frequently ask, sometimes right before deciding to quit dating. Although taking a break is a quick fix for date fatigue, the magnitude of boomer dating burnout warrants a discussion deeper than weariness.
